They aim to create an ambiance of relaxation and comfort for the cats, while offering an alternative way to foster positive interactions with cats beyond how shelters are able to showcase them in kennels.  The Cat’s Meow Café is also planning special delights for their human visitors: they have partnered with local favorite Pedestal Creative Dessert Company to create a cat themed menu that will include gluten free and vegan options.
